GREAT WEST WAY®unveils new aerial video


Englands Great West Way® has unveiled a new video featuring drone footage which offers a birds eye view of various destinations on the touring route, as well as popular attractions and the different modes of travel visitors are encouraged to use. The new video takes viewers on a journey on the Great West Way – England’s touring route between London and Bristol – from boarding a Great Western Railway (GWR) train using the GWR Great West Way Discoverer pass at London Paddington station, to journeying along the Canal & River Trust’s Kennet and Avon Canal. On the Great West Way, visitors can walk the Wiltshire landscape, drive across the Clifton Suspension Bridge and travel by plane from Bristol Airport.

The video showcases popular tourist attractions, destinations and events that are on the route as well as key facts about Ambassadors, such as Windsor Castle, National Trust properties and landscapes, Malmesbury Abbey & the Cotswolds, Salisbury Cathedral, Stonehenge, Bath, Hampton Court Palace, Kew Gardens, Bowood House & Gardens, Bristol International Balloon Fiesta, Brunel’s SS Great Britain and Bristol Airport.

Fiona Errington, Head of Marketing at VisitWiltshire/ England’s Great West Way® said, “Those that have travelled the Great West Way know what stunning landscapes and wonders there are to explore. One of our objectives when we commissioned this video was to bring the Great West Way to life for those that are unaware of what is located on the route. I believe this video does just that, it showcases what’s at the very heart of the route, the many forms of transportation that allow visitors to slow down and enjoy their surroundings, and the breath-taking destinations and attractions, that create a quintessentially English trip.”
